Residents in Macon can cast their votes for city council, the mayor's race, and the General Assembly.
Early voting began Monday at the Macon-Bibb County Board of Elections, just off of Pio Nono Avenue.
Elections Secretary Jeanetta Watson suggests calling in advance to verify registration information prior to voting.
"I would suggest that they know what district that they live in, they can do that by calling our office and our registrants can give them information on what district that they live in so that they know which candidates they will be eligible to vote for."
The last day to vote is July 15. Election day is July 19.
According to mayoral candidate Robert Brown, Bibb County GOP leader Suzanne Wood made negative remarks against Brown and his campaign.
Brown held a conference Friday morning in response to Wood calling his opinions racist.
"I'm stating it, I'm finished with it, I'm moving on," said Brown.
Wood responded, "Well in his tenure as a state senator there's example after example of him dividing the community and just recently he talked about how Republicans meet under white sheets. He called people from north Macon cave people and I just think those comments reflect a racist attitude."
She went on to say her comment is strictly her own opinion.
"I made the comment about Robert Brown on a political show, I was asked my opinion, it does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Republican party and I stand by my comment."
Brown and other Democratic leaders defended the accusation. They all agree it's sad to hear the campaign reduced to name calling.
Former Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor said, "To call Senator Brown a racist is a total outrage, he is the farthest thing from a racist."
Brown ended the conference by stating, "I think they made the accusation because they fear having a strong democrat in the mayor's office who's not afraid to be identified with the democratic party, who will also use that as a platform to try and advance the democrat's efforts to turn this state from red to blue."
Former Macon Mayor C. Jack Ellis says he doesn't have many regrets, but in hindsight he wishes he did not put the Forest Hill expansion project in the hands of the Georgia Department of Transportation.
The state is now looking to widen the street, but now Ellis says the Committee of the Road Improvement Program, which is the board of commissioners, is not working in the best interest of the public.
"What I see that group doing and I've had a good working relationship with them, but I see them trying to make more money. The wider the road, the bigger the design, the more money they make. and the public be damned that's what I see going on and that's unfortunate. So yes I do regret, asking that road to be designated as a state road."
163 residents of Macon signed a petition against the project. They agree with Ellis, stating the plan is intrusive and not environmentally friendly.
